Have you been swept up in PokémonGO fever? We sure have. Though, we may have been having more fun printing 'em than catching 'em!
The MakerGear factory has been humming with M2s printing 3D Pokémon of our own. These were quick and easy, low-resolution prints, each taking about an hour to an hour and a half for the 4-6 inch tall Pokémon.
And this week, we took some of them down to Cleveland's Great Lakes Science Center. We heard it was a hotspot for PokémonGO lures, with many reports of rare Pokémon to be caught there. Sure enough, we found plenty of fellow Trainers down by the waterfront and it made our day to pass out some of their favorite Pokémon in real life. We hope it made theirs too!

He was a software guy, not a machinist. Not yet, anyway. But one afternoon at auction, he got into a spirited bidding war on a machine. $250 later he had his very own vintage micro-lathe. It was exactly what he needed to enable him to begin making a real difference in the dawning desktop 3D printer movement.
